TUSCAN ELEMENTS

written by Alexandra Black

The Tuscan house, whether simple homestead or expansive villa, has become one of the most sought-after living environments of recent times.Tuscan Elements deconstructs the archetypal Tuscan house and examines its components in vivid detail: the terracotta-tiled floor; the vine-covered loggia; the exposed wood beams and scrubbed oak dining table; and the sunny courtyard garden with its all-important water feature, whether an ancient well or exquisite blue pool. With chapters dedicated to the natural resources of the region: stone, wood, fired earth and water, this beautifully illustrated book brings to life the colours, textures and aesthetics of the Tuscan house.
